The Quintuplapus

In 2002 during my freshman orientation at the Art Institute of Boston I found myself sketching on the cover of a folder handed out containing all of the ‘important’ information needed for school. I doodled as I listened in-attentively to the speaker. As I was drawing, I produced a creature which resembled an octopus, but one with only 5 legs. The animal was awkwardly shaped, stood aloof, and appeared to have a fairly uneasy disposition. As I continued to wait to get on with the rest of my life, another attendee of the orientation looked over and commented that it was an interesting character and that I should do something with it.

I diagrammed the entire first book, chronicling his departure from the ocean. Due to the physical features of the character, I decided to call the book the Quintuplapus. I began writing the story in a green binder, drawing preliminary images, where I imagined they would lie on the page. As I wrote I allowed the book to progress naturally my mind.

I have been working on the Quintuplapus, off and on, for over ten years, forging the story. The book moves forward growing on its original themes, allowing the hero to continue his adventures and eventually come to some type of resolution. At this point the first two installments are in post production while the third is in its illustrative stage.
